I found this draft entry from the summer - written on 29 July 2005, to be exact. It's sort of appropriate for me today, though. Go ahead, read it. Humor me.

"I thought I could get by on a lot less sleep. It all seemed to be going well, until this morning. I dumped all my coffee grounds into my breakfast bowl containing Health Valley EMPOWER! cereal mixed with plain yogurt and grapes. I think I even realized what I was doing halfway through, but I just kept on going. It was at least seven hours of sleep a night from then on out."

That is tired!
but how did it taste?

This reminds me of a time when, amidst a serious disaster (of global not personal proportions) I, without water, decided to EAT THE COFFEE GROUNDS because my caffiene headache seemed otherwise insurmountable. Alas, it was neither the salve I needed nor a wild new taste sensation. Then, still without water, I attempted to make coffee with SELTZER WATER, which for some reason did not work.

So I, too, have had my own contretemps with the grounds of coffee. I love coffee in its rarefied state; I loathe the pure form. (And after my little experiment, I could not drink coffee in any form for several months.)

So I understand completely!

Hey Jenny,

Thanks for the comment. Well, I like coffee anywhere, anytime, any way...So, in my opinion, it tasted fine. :)

I've read your comment three times now, and I am still laughing uncontrollably! I can only imagine eating the grounds straight up (on purpose) and making coffee with Seltzer... :)

For some reason, the seltzer did not even go through; I think I ruined the machine. And I could not leave the house--and even if I could, NOTHING nearby was remotely open, so I had a wrecked device, a wretched headache and no hope whatsoever.

But even under these conditions, eating the grounds is hardly optimal.

I agree; eating grounds is "hardly optimal"!

Sad news about the coffee machine. The manufacturers should really make them more durable, though. I mean, if someone's making coffee, they're probably not 100 percent with it anyways. They should accomodate by creating machines as durable as those new laptops that Panasonic has out. You can drop them, spill water on them (even selter, I'm sure), and they still won't break!
